If traveling from Pretoria to the Kruger Park area, the Glenshiel Hotel is a nice accommodation along the way. The staff is warm and welcoming. If there is a chill in the air, you will find a roaring fire in your room along with a comfortable bed. There is a nice variety of food and they will even prepare special requests with a little notice (the chef prepared Mopane worms for me). The grounds are set in the rolling hills and are perfect for a short walk.
If the opportunity arises, you will not be disappointed if you choose to spend a day or two at Glenshiel Hotel.
